Breast Implants Have Come a Long Way in 50 Years

Dallas plastic surgery specialist Dr. Steve Byrd looks at how breast augmentation has changed since a Texas woman received the first silicone breast implants in 1962.

    DALLAS, TX, June 29, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dr. Steve Byrd says techniques for cosmetic enhancement, including those used in his Dallas plastic surgery practice, have undergone major developments since the first breast augmentation using silicone breast implants in 1962.

A recent blog on the development of breast enlargement surgery details the many steps this popular cosmetic procedure has been through.

"It's extremely interesting to look back on how breast augmentation has progressed over the years," Dr. Byrd says. "What's even more interesting is to think of how advances in implant technology and procedural techniques have made breast enhancement safer and more effective."

Safety has always been a crucial concern for breast augmentation patients, Dr. Byrd says.

"Patients used to visit my practice after hearing a horror story in the media or from a friend about a procedure gone wrong," he says. "The U.S. Food and Drug Administration now approves three brands of silicone implants as well as saline implants."

Dr. Byrd offers both silicone and saline implants for breast augmentation patients in Dallas, as well as a range of surgical techniques for customizing each procedure.

"While breast implants have come a long way, patients are also benefiting from advanced surgical techniques," Dr. Byrd says. "I work with each patient to personalize her surgery based on her exact needs."

Patients often take advantage of additional cosmetic procedures that Dr. Byrd offers, such as tummy tuck surgery in Dallas.

"All types of cosmetic surgery have developed over the years to provide patients with natural-looking and long-lasting results," Dr. Byrd says.

Dr. Steve Byrd has been performing plastic surgery at his practice in Dallas, Texas for over 25 years. He is certified by both the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Dr. Byrd earned his Medical Degree with honors at the University of Texas Medical Branch. In addition to serving his patients from the Dallas/Fort Worth area, Dr. Byrd has held a variety of teaching appointments at the University of Texas Southwest Medical Center and is a member of a number of professional societies, including the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
